Perry High School: Suspect is dead; 6th grader killed, principal injured in school shooting at Iowa high school:

In a tragic incident in Perry, Iowa, a sixth-grade student was killed and five others injured in a high school shooting.

Law enforcement responded to an active shooter situation, discovering several injured individuals and an improvised explosive device, which was safely handled. The shooting was contained within the high school, with victims, including four students and a school administrator, receiving medical attention. The governor expressed condolences, assuring the community of full state support.

Approximately 150 officers responded swiftly, and vigils were planned for the affected community. The incident unfolded before school hours, limiting the number of students present. High school senior Ava Augustus described barricading herself during the ordeal. The FBI and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland are involved in the investigation.

Witnesses recounted harrowing moments, emphasizing the psychological impact on students. The Perry Community School District, with around 1,785 students, faces a devastating day as law enforcement plans further details in a press conference.
